My period used to last about 7 days and I was on a 35 day cycle. It was like this for over ten years, but over the past 18 months, it has shortened into a 25 day cycle with very light pinkish discharge for the first three or four days of my period, followed by three or four days of regular bleeding. It seems so weird and I feel like I’m always taking pregnancy tests just to make sure the spotting isn’t implantation bleeding. I’m not on any hbc, if that helps. I’d rather not take anything because I’m going to be ttc in three months.
Any clues to this? I still ovulate approximately 13 days before I start menstruating so I guess it’s not going to affect my fertility, but I’d like to know what could possibly cause such changes to my menstrual cycle. I just want my period to be over with rather than having it drawn out over a week. I’m spending nearly a third of the time having my period!
